Gaetz, Again, Attempts to Simply Blow-Up Hearings

22
272

Let us just lay this out, first. It is palatable, though thoroughly ridiculous, for a Republican Congressman to argue that evidence of Trump’s actions do not rise to the level of impeachable conduct. I mean, that’s where the Republicans stand right now.

Trump could marry a harem of 18 year old mail order brides, criminally violating all kinds of laws and shit. Republicans would stand-up and say the laws are vague, and that many biblical figures had multiple wives, it’s just proof Trump is like God.

That’s just what they do.

But that’s not enough for Congressman Matt Gaetz, Gaetz wanted to clear the room.

“Mr. Chairman!” Gclamored as Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) introduced the witness.

“I have a parliamentary enquiry,” Gaetz said.

To which chairman Nadler replied with: “Get fcked and shut your mouth.” Maybe not those words, definitely in spirit.

Gaetz apparently decided that the committee tabled the instruction to get fck’d and continued

“The members get dealt out of this whole hearing for the next four hours!” he shouted. “You’re going to try to overturn the result of an election with unelected people.”

Gaetz is unaware of the rules – or drunk off his ass, or both  – and believes that the decision to impeach will be determined by the witnesses. Gaetz “forgot” that the Committee only votes a recommendation on articles, which are then voted upon by the entire House.

Nadler had to calmly tell Gaetz that Gaetz cannot yell in the hearing, nor can Gaetz just disrupt the entire meeting. Nadler then shook his head and whispered that he is going to call the Red Cross and report crime against humanity. Nadler might have just silently wished it, maybe. But I got the message.

“The gentleman will suspend,” Nadler said, raising his voice. “The gentleman will not yell out and will not attempt to disrupt the proceedings.”

It is stunning that the Republicans have created a separate world. In their separate world, everything Trump does is divine. He is not to be questioned by mere humans. Their god can damn you to hell with one tweet.

I probably need to hit a beach or find some wilderness area where I can’t reach anyone. Unfortunately, one doesn’t make $30K a month by brilliantly writing on the net, and thank god for that because I’d lose all credibility.

I cannot live in this Republican world. When I go to the store and hold up a box of Raisin Bran, I want it to have Raisin Bran in it and not mushrooms. Republican world would say it is shitake mushrooms. Gaetz would chew up mushrooms and spit them everywhere to close the hearing.

As I said, a break would be in order.

****

Peace, y’all * BTW, you guys are deeply appreciated, I’ve had messages from four continents and god knows how many states. Feel free to write it keeps me going.

Doubly glad I couldn’t watch the hearing today. Reading about it is all I can handle right now. Take a break, Jason, if you need to. Your readers will still be here. 🙂

These witnesses should go straight to the press from this hearing room give their opinion on what these traitor trash republicans did to them in the hearing.

Just remember — we got here because Hillary decide it was her turn and ran the crappiest campaign in U.S. history. She ignored the key swing states because her campaign knew she was awful and the more people see her, the less they like her. Please don’t give me that garbage, “but she won by blah blah blah votes. She lost where it counted and did not even try win swing states Obama knew he needed. Trump and all the criminality suck, but don’t forget how we got here! Some want to make the same mistake in 2020 which will… Read more »

Also remember this GOP whataboutism is horseshit, so please don’t go there with that Hillary BS, if she was in prison for whatever you think or want to believe she did or didn’t do, would that make Trump any less of a criminal? No, it would not so let it go, ok comrade? thank you.

Go to hell please. Hillary did not decide it was “her turn” — voters did — and she ran an average campaign that was no better or worse than most campaigns. She did not ignore swing states — she virtually lived in Ohio and Pennsylvania where I had the pleasure of hearing her speak seven times, and found her lucid and inspiring. I have no idea what you mean by the “same mistake” but to mean it means anointing a tired old geezer who thinks it’s “his turn.”

Did Gaetz somehow sleep through government and civics classes?
Impeachment with removal doesn’t overturn the election. It makes the next person in the line of succession president.

Beyond government and civics classes, he’s a lawyer. Shouldn’t he have an understanding? I guess it’s not politically feasible, doesn’t fit the repub narrative.

So is Louie Gohmert and he is “America’s Dumbest Congressman,” a title Gaetz is working hard to take from him.

Gaetz is a menace to even douchebag’ he probably had a few breakfast cocktails before going to work this morning, that would explain his shitty behavior this morning to disrupt the proceedings

Matt Gaetz is a bootlicker who still can’t get his goose-stepping right, but he sure does know how to kiss ass.

Yeah you don’t have anything positive to say. Stand there and babble a bunch of bullshit to confuse and redirect the proceedings. We’re back to lie enough you can force the lie to be the truth. The republicans new way to get their way!
